Today is St Valentine’s Day when a lot of people celebrate their love by giving cards, letters and gifts.
We don’t have the practice of observing this day. So there’s no plan today. Perhaps we need to rethink and show our love and affection daily instead…
Yesterday I received the news of a friend’s sudden demise. It all happened very fast. We are all in shock. Some of us just met her last week. Some of us didn’t. Those who did expressed their disbelief for she seemed well. Those who didn’t expressed their regrets of not being able to meet her last week.

Happy Valentine’s to you all.
Ziki [直] arrived on 27 Aug and he’s the fairest of them all. He is a Waseon Rosy White on Humming Dolly new Attractive body. He was released during SWITCH 6th Anniversary. I gave him a light face up since he’s very fair. Initially I thought of using a light coloured wig but somehow, he doesn’t seem to like it. So will settle with this pecan brown Tart cut for him.
I will need to shop for a pair of eyes for him though. I borrowed Tsune’s blue eyes for this shoot. The one below is a pale rose which I don’t like how he looks with it.
Later, when the light is good, will try to take some comparison photos of him with the rest of the dolly folks and you will see how fair he is.
Oh, his name means: soon/nearby/honesty/frankness/simplicity/cheerfulness/correctness/being straight/…
I was hoping for an awe-inspiring aniki (= big brother) of a gang or a young defiant lord with his ear rings, black nails, flowery kimono and the swords in the background. But in the end, I think he will likely get a gang of drooling fans instead of loyal followers…
Maybe should have a more sober kimono fabric? (-_- ?)
Today is the second day of the Year of Monkey; the second day of Lunar New Year for the Chinese. Thankfully, we don’t need to go visiting and so I get to relax and laze around and play with my dolls and camera. Something I haven’t got to do for quite a while…so now I’m happy. (^_ ^)
And would like to wish you all good health, prosperity and double happiness in the Year of the Monkey. 恭祝身体健康, 万事如意, 新年快乐!
Chika is wearing the kimono I have made for the HD57 girls so it is a bit loose on her. But she is happy with it. *This girl is easily pleased.*
I have finally made the hair accessory to go with the kimono. The flower and butterfly are made using the kanzashi method. Hmmm…maybe a red tassel might be better…but anyway, at least this is something to appease the girls so they won’t complain I have been neglecting them. (^_^;;)
